'This Country' Confirmed For Third Season To Return In February
The third series of TV show This Country has now been confirmed to return in February 2020 - just three months to go!
Show director Tom George today shared a picture on Twitter of an editing suite showing still images of Lee Mucklowe aka 'Kurtan' and his cousin Kerry Mucklowe on screens with the caption: "Editing done on This Country Series 3.
"Out February next year."
The LOL-a-minute mockumentary stars actors Charlie Cooper and sister Daisy May Weston (nee Cooper), who also write the script, and it explores the lives of young people in modern rural Britain.

The BBC Three show focuses on social etiquette (or lack of), their ridiculous behaviour, silly jokes and how bored the two teens get living in the countryside.
It was a big hit in the first two series, with over four million BBC iPlayer views, plus BAFTA awards under its belt, so we're expecting big things for round three.
The third season was filmed back in September in Gloucestershire and two months on it is ready for launch. Now, we cannot wait to watch what we expect will be six episodes, if it follows routine from previous years.
Series two ended back in April 2018, although we were treated to a one-off special in October last year too, but it's been over a year since we've seen these characters on our screens - it's about time they returned.
But the brother/sister duo have been pretty busy in that time, with Daisy May marrying now husband Will Weston and welcoming a baby girl, as well as Daisy May and Charlie doing the rounds to promote their new book, This is This Country which is based on the TV show.
But will we see Daisy's girl Pip star in the show?
Sadly not. When asked if Pip would feature by Nihal Arthanayake on BBC Radio 5 live, she said she'd tried to get her in but her scene got cut. Poor kid!
Amongst all the madness of babies and book signings, we're just glad they found time to cook up another series.
